Trailer Watch: Ron Howard’s Beatles Doc Eight Days A Week
We recently reported that Hulu has launched Hulu Documentary Films, a destination for original and exclusive documentary film titles. Now its first acquisition — The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years, a new Beatles documentary from Ron Howard — has its first trailer (above).
The film features rare and exclusive footage, and was produced with the full cooperation of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison. It focuses on the early part of The Beatles’ career (1962-1966), and will explore how John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together to form the Fab Four.
The documentary’s U.S. theatrical release date is set for September 16, 2016 via Abramorama. It will stream exclusively on Hulu beginning September 17, marking the first feature film to debut on Hulu immediately following its theatrical premiere.
